Take Back the Night

Take Back the Night

Take Back the Night is an international event, with marches and rallies occurring around the world since 1976. In that year, in Belgium, women attending the International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women walked together holding candles to protest the ways in which violence permeates the lives of women worldwide.
As part of the worldwide movement to "take back the night," women will walk without fear through the night and reclaim the streets, which for many years have been sources of fear and violence. Take Back the Night is organized by an alliance of local community service agencies, universities, religious organizations, governmental entities, businesses, and private citizens.

Students enrolled in GNDR 450 - Student Activism in Theory and Practice organize the Take Back the Night march and rally.

Each year there are 207,754 victims of sexual assault in the United States. That’s about one victim every two minutes. Of these, less than 50% are reported to the police. It’s time to make a change.
